The code supports perl LWP::UserAgent or wget. The PKGBUILD depended on wget, but the code will attempt to use LWP::UserAgent if it exists, not checking for https support. I have switched the PKGBUILD to depend on perl-lwp-protocol-https instead of wget for your case.

I needed to install perl-lwp-protocol-https for GrabWeather to work. Otherwise I got the error "501 Protocol scheme 'https' is not supported (LWP::Protocol::https not installed) at /usr/share/gkrellm/GrabWeather line 51." So that should be a dep.

GrabWeather needs $WeatherSrc changed to 'http://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/data/observations/metar/decoded/'

Please add a patch or orphan and I will.

URL has changed. Updated PKGBUILD at http://pastebin.com/mT0TvJhe

The build() function should use /usr/bin/install or just install (I don't know which is preferred).
